This is the easy way to make ginger beer, where the ginger is simply soaked just slightly fermented for 24 hours (another method requires up to a five-day fermentation). Ginger beer is one of Jamaica’s most popular soft drinks and is sold practically everywhere, from the supermarket to roadside stands.
This drink is wonderfully refreshing. If the ginger heat is too much, tame it with more crushed ice and some club soda.
